The wait is over. Two and a half years since she took the world by storm with her international bestselling sensation THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, Paula Hawkins returns with INTO THE WATER, on sale from Riverhead Books on May 2. In an “equally addicting page-turner” (Marie Claire) that brings the same psychological
depth and propulsive plotting that shocked the world, plus more twists, turns, and troubled characters, INTO THE WATER is a “creepy” (Booklist, starred review), “unputdownable, smart, thoughtful thriller” (PopSugar) with “a satisfying punch” (Publishers Weekly).
An INTO THE WATER excerpt and author profile is in the current edition of Vogue, which places Hawkins “at the forefront of a group of female authors – think Gillian Flynn and Megan Abbott – who have reinvigorated the literary suspense novel by tapping a rich vein of psychological menace and social unease.” Still ahead, interviews on Good Morning America and NPR Weekend Edition, along with dozens of reviews in other print and online outlets.
Hawkins will kick off a six-city tour in the US in Barnes & Noble Union Square in conversation with fellow Penguin Random House author Lee Child on May 9.
